Lantern Scholars Fly-In Programs

Exploring the Lantern Scholars Fly-In Program at Bryn Mawr College: An Inside Look and Interview with Emily Santana

Are you a high school student starting your college search journey? If so, the Lantern Scholars fly-in program at Bryn Mawr College might just be the perfect opportunity for you. This program is specifically designed to support students from historically underrepresented backgrounds by providing them with a comprehensive introduction to Bryn Mawr College.

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Emily Santana, the Senior Assistant Director of Admissions & Coordinator for Access and Equity at Bryn Mawr College, to learn more about the Lantern Scholars program. Emily shared insights on what students can expect from the program and how it can help them in their college search process.

During the 3-day program, participants will have the chance to experience campus life firsthand by staying in college dorms, attending classes, interacting with current students, and exploring campus resources. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the vibrant city of Philadelphia, getting a taste of the local culture and history.

One of the most meaningful aspects of coordinating the Lantern Scholars program for Emily has been witnessing the transformative impact it has on students. By providing them with the tools and knowledge to envision themselves in higher education, the program helps students explore college environments they may not have considered before.

For students embarking on the college search process, Emily offers some valuable advice. Starting early, identifying priorities, engaging with current students, and considering financial aid are all key factors to keep in mind. Additionally, participating in a fly-in program like Lantern Scholars can offer immersive experiences, academic and social insights, exploration of surrounding areas, and exposure to diverse perspectives, all of which can help students build out their college list.

So, if you’re a high school student looking to explore what Bryn Mawr College and the Lantern Scholars program have to offer, don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity. It could be the first step towards finding the college that best fits your needs and aspirations.
